Sigurður Guðjónsson (b. 1975) studied in Copenhagen, Reykjavík, and Vienna. He started his exhibition career at the turn of the century on the vibrant artist-run experimental scene in Reykjavík that has fostered new art in temporary venues all over the old city.
His dark and hypnotically moody videos immediately set him apart and attracted attention not only in Iceland but also in Berlin, New York, London, Beijing, Seoul, and wherever they were exhibited. With more than twenty solo exhibitions and dozens of group shows and festival screenings, his works have found appreciative audiences around the world.
Sigurður Guðjónsson was awarded the 2018 Icelandic Art Prize as Visual Artist of the Year for his 2017 exhibition Inlight. He will represent Iceland at the Venice Biennale in 2022.
